This is the discussion page of Tambayan Philippines, where Filipino contributors and contributors to Philippine-related articles discuss general matters regarding the development of Philippine-related articles as well as broad topics on the Philippines with respect to Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects.

Philippine Reliable Sources Proposal[edit]

A proposal that shall form the nucleus of a Philippine-specific reliable sources list is online and can be viewed in my sandbox. @HueMan1 and other interested contributors, you may want to check it out and provide relevant feedback in this thread. -Ian Lopez @ 17:30, 17 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Excellent work! Although I'm leaning towards emulating Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Sources more, this is a good start. I would also suggest using sentence case in section headers since that is the standard. HueMan1 (talk) 23:17, 17 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've added some university student publications and some regional media outlets to your proposal. Ganmatthew (talkcontribs) 04:41, 19 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am a bit unclear as to what this page is for, exactly. There isn't an explanation on the page. Does it eventually seek to be a whitelist, and if so, what happens to pages that aren't in it, or aren't in it yet? And who decides what goes in and what does not? I fear that this will make the creation of new pages difficult, with sources rejected outright by overzealous new page patrollers who will inevitably argue that source credibility is questionable if the source is "not on the list." I note, for example, that and verafiles are not on the list yet. Neither are, as far as I can tell, any NGO pages such as the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility, Bantayog ng mga Bayani, or Action for Economic Reforms, or Ibon Foundation. I fear a list with lots of inclusions, because inevitably it creates potential for a lot of exclusions. But perhaps this can be clarified by the proponent? Thanks. - Chieharumachi (talk) 14:52, 19 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Its overall goal is to collate and classify sources often used in articles linked to the Philippines and Filipinos similar to what other WikiProjects have done. I wouldn't call it a whiltelist but more of a recommendatory guide. As for Philippine- and Filipino-focused media outlets that aren't on that list, it would fall under "No consensus" (not yet classified as reliable or unreliable by the community) and I would add that clarification for certain new page patrollers who'd object to the inclusion of URLs coming from yet-to-be classified media entities. For Bulatlat, I would objectively classify it as an online-only national media outlet while Vera Files and some entities like the CMFR will be classified under niche outlets covering the media. Even though the initial scope of the proposal is mostly limited to publications based in the Philippines and/or have a focus on the country and its people, it does not limit the collation and classification of NGOs, advocacy groups, think tanks, pollsters and other websites in the said list though under different categories; I've also made some changes to the proposal in response to the points raised. -Ian Lopez @ 09:05, 23 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Other notable student publications that IMHO should be included:
  • The Philippine Collegian (UP Diliman)
  • The Varsitarian (UST)
  • The Guidon (ADMU)

Finally, we need something like this. I'm too tired of having to respond to AfDs that look for Western/non-Filipino sources to justify a deletion.
By the way, I was thinking of something like this with regard to awards. I'll probably make one on my sandbox soon. It's time to put the small-time awards in their proper place (lol). I'll ping you about this soon. --- Tito Pao (talk) 10:38, 20 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unified page for Metrolink bus company[edit]

I would like to see a unified Metrolink page. Despite the various sub-operators like NAIA, Malanday, Baclaran, Alabang, and Taguig, they are still controlled by one main company, and all wear a highlighter-green/yellow livery.
